    The Biz With D: Interview w/ Candice Glover x Ledisi x Dana Chanel

    in Music

    Released by 19 Recordings/Interscope Records, Music Speaks serves up a sophisticated yet supremely soulful blend of love songs and self-empowerment anthems. In creating the album, Candice Glover partnered with an A-list lineup of producers that includes The Underdogs (Beyoncé, Jennifer Hudson, Justin Timberlake), Mike WiLL Made-It (Rihanna, Miley Cyrus), The Jackie Boyz (Madonna, Sean Kingston), Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins (The Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga), and Paul “Hotsauce” Dawson (Robin Thicke, Usher). Endlessly moving and deeply intimate, Music Speaks finds Glover channeling the emotional dynamism of legendary vocalists who’ve long inspired her. “My biggest influences have always been singers like Aretha Franklin, Patti LaBelle, Marvin Gaye, and Whitney Houston—the kind of people who are so heartfelt in their performance, you can just immediately feel what they’re singing,” notes Glover.


    You can tell when a woman has finally come into her own. It's in the swivel of her hips, the growl in her voice and the joy that brightens her face when she smiles. A woman filled with confidence is a force to be reckoned with. For singer songwriter Ledisi, that exuberance rings through on every track of her new album The Truth. And that's saying a lot. Over the past 13 years, New Orleans native Ledisi Anibade Young has recorded six albums, gained eight Grammy nominations including a nod for "Best New Artist" in 2008, performed six times at the White House for President and Mrs. Obama, and earned a place in the pantheon of the best soul singers of her generation. With The Truth, Ledisi, known for her rich and evocative ballads says it's time for something new.

    Who Can You Trust? #Friends #Family #Coworkers

    in Relationships

    When the chips are down and it's crunch time... who can you trust?  A lot of us have people that are our go-to's whenever there is a situation, but can we really rely on them?  I've learned since the launch of my show who my true friends were.  People that I thought would support what I was doing have all but ignored my efforts.  That will happen.  Most people will only have a handful of people they can rely on anyway.  But, how can you recognize them?


    That's what I'll discuss with my Show Legends tonight.  Who can you trust?  


    Also on the show we'll discuss the Grammys and Beyonce.  Did Beyonce stiff-arm Ledisi out of a song that Ledisi recently brought back to life in a movie soundtrack?  How did Bey wind up singing a song that was recently performed by someone else in the movie "Selma"?


    That and more on the Talk 2 Q Radio Show!  "No experts.  Just opinions."


    Show No. 444


    Scheduled for 90 mins.
